Pupil Premium 15/16
Chelsfield Primary School
Pupil Premium Report September 2015-2016
This report is to inform parents and other stakeholders about how we spend our Pupil Premium Grant. The Pupil Premium Grant is money the school receives to improve outcomes for pupils who are economically disadvantaged and who are vulnerable to educational underachievement. The school received, in 2015/16 £31,680 in total for each pupil who had qualified for Free School meals at any point during the last 6 years. The money is to be used to improve outcomes for all deprived pupils and is not specifically allocated to individual pupils. We have used the money to improve the quality of teaching and the quality access to the curriculum for eligible pupils.
Allocation for 2015/16 is £31,680. Total number of pupils eligible was 24.
We aim to ensure that appropriate provision is made for disadvantaged pupils, this includes ensuring that the needs of disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed
In making provision for disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged or who are vulnerable to social exclusion will receive free school meals or will have received them in the last 6 years
We also recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged are either registered or qualify for free school meals.
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis.
